Meaning: The Sun's Day

Mercury represents the Energy System of Communication and all the tools we use to communicate an idea, a musical concept, a written or spoken message or any type of information, like mathematics or science. Mercury represents expression and rules both information and disinformation—lies and trickery. His/Her interest is in providing the tools to learn, to investigate, to order, to gather knowledge and to express/communicate it. Sometimes the tools of expression are masks, languages, and the arts. Even if Mercury has to trick you to give you these tools, S/He will. Mercury rules the signs Gemini and Virgo.

Neptune represents the Energy of Dreams, Imagination, Illusion and Belief. It also represents the Energy of Delusion, Self-Deception and Manipulation. If you’re clear about Neptune’s powers, you can turn what you imagine into reality.

These are the major choices of expressing Neptune’s energy. Neptune co-rules Pisces along with Jupiter.

Saturn represents the Energy System of Definition, setting boundaries and providing structure.

Uranus represents the Energy of Change and Disruption and Revolution. Everything must change. It dissolves old paradigms and sets the stage for new ones.
